Procedures and Methodology

Statistical tests

Consider the levels of measurement –

Nominal – name, race, control or experimental group

Ordinal – rank order, first, second, third (no equal distance between points)

Interval – equally spaced units, likert scale (1- 5)

Ratio – same as interval but zero point – age, time, amounts

Procedures and Methodology

Statistical tests

Clarify what you want to determine

Differences

Relationships

Predictions

Assumptions related to specific statistical tests

Normally distributed, sample size

Conditions under which the specific tests can be used

Set alpha level – usually 0.05. Cannot change this after you collect the data!

Research Proposal

Procedures and Methodology

Statistical test

t-test – difference between two means

ANOVA – difference between more than two means compared on one independent variable

Post-hoc comparisons – Tukey’s HSD, Fisher’s LSD

Chi square – frequencies

Correlation

Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient Pearson r

Spearman’s rho coefficient of correlation

Multiple regression – correlation between a combination of two or more predictor variables and a criterion variable
